    Okay let me see if I can get this right.

    I know it seems hard to believe but everything truly does happen for reason. I myself can attest to this, things really do happen for reason. There is a divine order to things a path that almost seems you can't get off of. We fool ourselves into thinking that we have made our...

    This goes out to all of the people

    I do. I've been thinking about almost every

    girl I liked in my life lately. And quite frankly, I can gladly accept and enjoy the fact I never got into a relationship with them. I wasn't ready at the time, and I would have done many things that just wouldn't be right. (Not perverted or anything, but just weird) Same can...

    No matter what happens,

    no matter how far you seem to be away from where you want to be, never stop believing that you will somehow make it. Have an unrelenting belief that things will work out, that the long road has purpose, that the things that you desire may not happen today, but they will happen...

    Everything happens when you want it to happen.

    Yes, there is a reason that you want it. The reason can be anything. Sometimes you want something without any reason. So, it is not true that there is always a reason behind everything. Sometimes, some things happen out of nowhere and you try to think the reason but your...

    I believe everything happens

    for a reason. People change so you can learn how to let go. Things go wrong, so that you can appreciate them when they're right. You believe lies, so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

    Today is like every other day. I board the train quickly-can't be late. I choose a seat near the back. Few sit there. The light is broken, but that's fine. I don't need a light today. Alone I sit, lost in my thoughts, swirling, swirling. ..A slight noise startles me back to...
